Terence Charlston is an internationally acknowledged specialist performer on early keyboard instruments. His broad career encompasses many complementary roles including solo and chamber musician, choral and orchestral director, and teacher and academic researcher. He is a core member of the ensemble Florilegium and was a member of London Baroque from 1995 until 2007.

These include editions and recordings of Matthew Locke, Carlo Ignazio Monza, Albertus Bryne, William Byrd’s My Ladye Nevell Booke, and French clavichord music. He is co-editor of a six-volume facsimile series, English Keyboard Music c.1650– c.1700. Within the educational sphere, Terence founded the Department of Historical Performance at the Royal Academy of Music, London in 1995 and is International Visiting Tutor in Harpsichord at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester.
